The more and more uninformed announcers and reporters sing the praises of DeVante Parker, the more I have to point out his lack of effort when fighting for a ball and his overall poor mechanics. I’ve already mentioned the lazy way he WAITED for a pass to gently float down to him in the Ravens game, which of course made it easy pickings for a defender to intercept the ball. The week before vs. the Niners, Parker TWICE set his hand down out of bounds while landing.   The “catches” looked nice at full speed and even fooled the refs.  But upon further review, bothRead More →

Some Miami Dolphins writers should be comedians.  Or, at the very least, they should read Dolphins Truth more often.  Our head coach could learn a thing or two from reading my analysis as well. Bloggers are filling the Internet today with such earth-shattering revelations as “The Dolphins need better linebackers” (Sun Sentinel).   “They have to do better.” (Phinsiders).   Really?  You’re discovering that in Week 12?! Adam Gase, who calls plays as if he bet money on the opponent, said that the Dolphins didn’t execute, and that’s why they lost.  Uhh, no, Adam. The Dolphins DID execute some things, and then YOU abandoned those things.  GaseRead More →

On a day where it’s easy to blame the Olphins (no “D”)  on the defensive side of the ball, or to blame Ryan Tannehill and his three interceptions, or to blame anyone else, you have to look no further than blaming our rookie head coach and his awful decisions. This ugly blowout falls squarely on the shoulders of Adam Gase. You have to start with the first series.  Just like in previous weeks when we fell behind 7-0 or even 14-0 in the last 4 games.  We came out flat and empty. We were on defense, and the Ravens hit a bunch of short slantRead More →

Let’s hope that Parker learns how to time his leaps and come down in bounds for once. Dolphins 26, Ravens 13.      The Ravens don’t scare anyone of offense anymore, although I’ll probably eat my words as Mike Wallace goes off. I can envision (HOPE) that Jay Ajayi goes off today after several weeks of so-so rushing.   Gase should call more pitchouts and sweeps, because opposing defenses have learned how to stop the traps between the guard and tackle that Ajayi was exploiting earlier.   I also hope Gase has the offense ready to go from the get-go.   We are constantly going threeRead More →

It’s been a while since the Dolphins played in such a big game.   A few years ago, we had a chance to make the playoffs if we beat either the Jets or the Bills.  Yes, those were big games, but even if we won, we would have limped into the playoffs as a 9-7 team and would have gotten destroyed the next week on the road.  This time, it’s a little different. The stakes are higher because we’re playing a quality opponent this week, on the road, whereas in December 2013 we had two games against two of the worst teams in the NFL,Read More →
